I believe I am much better than my stats now.

My latest win:

http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=6640947

Opponent had better stats than me, but i still won.
So how does this clan thing work? People told me they will invite me when i have played more and i have.

How can I see my invites?

Congratulations on your improvement, I'm positive there is a clan that would be happy to take you. I don't know if there are still teaching clans, one of them would be ideal if any clans do that.

As for your opponent in this game though he/she might have had better 'stats' but from such a low game count (Completed 49 ranked games (25 [Won] / 49)) They would not be considered by most as a 'good' player.

Good job Namib. But i suggest you to forget stats and try to play team games with good teammates. Ask them to help you with your picks and moves. Join tournaments. Tournaments are good to discuss moves. These will help you to improve. By the way with these picks you have no chance against a good player. I never lost against an opponent who triple picked ;).

Good job!

I think they might meant even more. As you maybe can see, many players have more than 1000 games.

And about that invite thing, i don't think you get invited to very many clans out of nowhere.
Here you see the list of all clans -> http://warlight.net/Clans/List . Go and find a few clans you like, and contact their leader(s). If they have any requirements, it probably say so on their page. If you reach the requirements (if there are any), maybe you'll get a positive response.

look at my recent game:

http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=6643440

Was this player a good player?

I think i understand now that you can also win by countering your opponent, instead of finishing bonuses yourself.

You have an odd style. You win in the most unconventional ways, your picks are so goofy. Like the nerdy girl in the rom-com who takes off her glasses and lets down her hair and suddenly everyone realises is super babeing. I'd like to see how sucessful it would be against the best players. You would generate some entertaining games at least.

You get three places at the start, but it is always good to pick 6 places at the beginning picks 4,5&6 are your backup picks.

These are incase your opponent has chosen your second or third pick as his/her first or second. If this happens the game gives you your 4th choice pick. If you don't have any back ups it gives you a random spot - this is why you got Greenland in that game. (which didn't work out bad for you) You could though end up in a big bonus with a wasteland if you don't have any back up picks.

I see no reason why he'd have no chance vs. a good player with those starts.

I also call BS on Ottoman's claims to have never lost to a triple pick. While I suppose it's possible that it's accurate, I doubt it, and I am certain he could lose to such picks: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=6404320

There's Mian being taken down by very, very similar picks to those made by Namib. I've beaten Gnuff with WC triples as well, probably other top players too.

@Good kid

How is that even comparable? I see no reason why you would post a 3,4,5 same area pick, selling it as a triple pick, other then mind my saying a show off against a good player.

But i agree with you about not having lost to triple pick ever is BS, because i am sure everyone with a certain amount of games will have experienced that more than once.


@Piggy

I find it much more interesting that Aranka showed up, just when you made a nerdy girl turns super babe metaphor. Maybe she wants to secretly invade our subconscious to form a new image of herself.

@myhand I posted the wrong game initially and edited it when I realized, about 4 minutes before you posted.

The link currently there is a 1/2/3 china game.

I pick more sometimes, but i dont see why.
When you dont pick 3 you get something else and your opponent can not know which.
So sometimes i do, but sometimes i think it is better not to pick 6.

I post more games so you can tell me what to improve, or what is already good.
And i am a little proud of winning so many games now :)

You are right. The least picks you make, the better.

Your opponent can never 'see' your picks, the only way they can know them for sure is if they chose it and didn't get it. That means they know that you have it. And it's always best to pick 6. Look at any ladder games from the top players, they all pick more than 3.

Potato play nice he's trying to learn, who knows he might be in [WM] one day.

I played against some other players one of them Kasparov a well known member of the community and he also explained me some stuff and answered many of my questions. Thank you for that kasparov.

one of them was a member of the clan 20, now I know why i lost that game :)

Game 1 vs Kasparov: You got lucky with that counter that you probably didn't know was a counter.
Game 2 vs darkw1ng: Strange picks from darkw1ng. (or maybe I just don't understand them)
Game 3 vs hedja: Not sure I approve of hedja's picks. Your picks... ick

He's handling himself well tactically; my advice would be to work some more on starting pick theory. The entire game can be decided by picks.

I can help occasionally with a 1v1 or 2v2 match; also, if you haven't seen this resource, consider it your strategic 1v1 textbook: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B024HXqzvoGCejhhajNFa1ZOVlE/edit

Hope that helps! :)

How about this one?

I found out: The closer your picks, the stronger.

We both picked the same area, but i ended up with more spots there, so I won!

Triple picking can be a problem: let's say you each get three starting bonuses. Two of them are "safe" in the far away spots on the map, but in one, you encounter your opponent early, and he manages to break through! If you have spread yourself out well, then you still have two out of three picks, but if you start all in the same area, you will soon have 0. He would roll through the first of your bonus and then discover the other two, and then the game would be over.

Triple picking can be very dangerous, because if you meet a well-prepared opponent early in the game, he will shred it.

People trying to teach someone better than themself by an order of several magnitude is quite funny.

Namib's picks are weird, but still good while being unusual, and his play is too impeccable to be believable. He's making three picks as a show as he knows he's picking things his opponent won't contest.
